The second of the four major golf championships has arrived as the U.S Open will begin tomorrow at Pebble Beach.¬† We were there only a few weeks ago and the course looked pretty gnarly then so I can only imagine the condition it will be in tomorrow when the pro‚??s give it a whirl.
It is five years since Michael Campbell, that kiwi lad from Titahi Bay won the US Open at Pinehurst Number 2.¬† So we‚??re pretty gutted that we‚??re not going to get a chance to play #2 this week whilst we are staying in Pinehurst. The memorabilia dotted all around the town of Pinehurst is pretty amazing and I can only imagine what it would have been like to be a kiwi in Pinehurst for ‚??that week‚?? in 2005.¬† Our host from yesterday, Mr Kelly Miller, who you will read all about in the coming blogs, had Cambo staying at his course at Pine Needles and it sounded like some party afterwards.¬†¬† By the way if anyone knows how we can get in touch with Cambo please let us know as Kelly wants to give him some good news.
If you're a golf fan and tuning in to the 2010 US Open, you should consider checking out the¬†US Open Golf odds¬†for the odds of the random guys in the field who might have a win reminiscent of Cambo‚??s or even Lucas Glover in 2009.¬† The qualifying here is pretty stringent and heaps of guys haven‚??t even made the field such as Justin Rose.¬† Shame that Doug Batty didn‚??t have a blinder and make it through qualifying again!
Anyway 156 players are having a crack at the second of the years majors ‚?? we‚??ll be at the next one, the Open Championship at St Andrews, and no doubt will be watching the¬†PGA Championship¬†later in the year.
The huge news in the USA is whether Phil Mickelson is going to snake Tiger as the world number one.¬† One chap we met tonight rekins that Tiger will never win another major.¬† Big call.¬† Stay tuned for a huge week at the US Open, I know from walking around Pebble that if the wind blows that is going to be some golf course to tame.
